If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know I have a penchant for swimwear (and shoes!). My latest discovery is Lilliput & Felix swimwear, a new entry in the swimwear market and offering the most gorgeous multi strapped bikinis. I’ve gone for the black number. It fits like a glove which is essential for my dives, but also looks super with all the strappy detailing.
Lilliput & Felix swimwear is in fact brand new to the market and British, designed by Catriona Ramsay and inspired by the beauty of British country garden – and yes I do use my bikini in my pine clad garden, but due to our delightful weather more in the hottub than for sunbathing!
The Lilliput & Felix Collection 1. combines natural softness with formal sculpting, and practicality with beauty. Form, fit and function are held perfectly in balance in a collection that tugs at the heart, urging us to leave behind the city and head for the shores of the sea. Swimming costumes are the corner stone, complemented by bikinis and print kimonos and kaftans in sheer silk-chiffon. Ramsay has wanted to design swimwear since childhood. Over time her ideas have focused on prints, textures and interesting silhouettes that make getting into swimwear exciting and fun. When friends complained about the difficulty of finding swimwear that allowed them to feel body-confident and unique, Catriona was galvanised into action.
All L&F swimwear elements are sourced and made in Europe and put together in Britain. Half the suits are made in fine, soft, moisture-wicking textile and the other half comes in French Jacquards and textured knits that are tactile and quite unique. All are extremely chlorine-resistant and come with super-soft metallic contrast lining.
Current stockists include “Baar & Bass” and “Mojo & McCoy”, and several further stores are set to follow shortly. The entire collection is available at Lilliput & Felix Online. “Lilliput & Felix will always be about enjoying life to the full, in all its beauty”. Amen to that and roll on the summer!
